Smith: Forget shirts, some gambler lost his shoes

Ed and Sally Jensen had the nicest outing to the Graton casino last Wednesday.

"We didn't lose any money," Sally said. Lunch at the Daily Grill couldn't have been better.

Shortly afterward, Ed found in the way back of their SUV a large plastic bag full of men's shoes. He asked Sally what the heck they were doing there. She said he should know, as clearly he put them there.

"We had a little argument about who is losing it," she shared.

They came to agree that someone, by accident or intent, placed the shoes in their car while they were in the casino.

Sally doubts the shoes were just dumped because they're quite nice: Golf shoes, sandals, tennis shoes, all either a size 13 or 8.5.

It makes you wonder if the owner of a similar SUV might be explaining how he went to the casino and didn't lose his shirt, but his shoes.

MEGAN'S HIGH NOTE: Having once heard 15-year-old Megan Fleischmann sing -#8212; she played young Fiona in last year's Summer Repertory Theatre production of "Shrek" -#8212; I envy all who'll be in the audience Feb. 9 at Carnegie Hall.

Megan, a freshman at Santa Rosa High, is one of the outstanding teens chosen to sing or play there in the Honors Performance Series.
